The whole point of streaming was to stop paying TV providers way too much money for channels I dont even watch. Now theres 70 million stream services and everything keeps devolving back to what we hated in the first place. People gonna pirate.

The whole reason I pay for Netflix is because my mom uses my account and she wont subscribe to a service on her own. If I cant let her use my account, I wont have an account
